BBC Breakfast has apologised after images of the gorilla Kumbuka, whose recent non-escape filled a slow news day, were shown on screen instead of Scottish number one, Nicola Sturgeon.

Presenter Naga Munchetty was discussing what was coming up on the programme and that they would be joined by Ms Sturgeon later when when the VT glitch occurred.

“We at the BBC are very sorry for any offence caused to Kumbuka by the mistake,” said a spokesbot, “and we’d like to reassure him that no insult was intended.”

When the aeons of war left the gods dead and the universe decimated, a single duck rose from the ashes and stood for justice and freedom! It wasn't me, that duck, but we look quite bit alike.
